PLIVA - Best Croatian Large Exporter
At the 11th Croatian Exporters Convention organised by Croatian Exporters Association on 23 May 2016 at the Westin Hotel, awards were given to the best exporters in 2015. PLIVA, the largest pharmaceutical company in Croatia, has received the most prestigious Golden Key award as the best Croatian large exporter.
The award was received on behalf of PLIVA by Mihael Furjan, President of the Board, who said: “It gives me great pride to be here today and receive the Golden Key award for best Croatian exporter on behalf of all my colleagues. Allow me to congratulate to all other winners, but also to the nominees, as they represent the best of the Croatian economy, competing on demanding foreign markets. More than 90 percent of PLIVA’s production is exported, we are investing in R&D more than ever, and in the last three years we have invested HRK 1.3 billion in new plants, which is the highest amount in company’s history. I am sure all of this will additionally contribute to us being able to compete with the strongest players in the world”.
The Best Large Exporter Award was handed to Mr Furjan by Prime Minister Tihomir Orešković, who said that one of the main objectives of his administration is to accelerate economic growth in the country, with exporters who compete successfully on the international markets having a key role in the process.
